Simulator training and other instructors may be used as assistance with the instructors’ guidance only.
Booking in for training is to be according to the following schedules:
Wednesday: 15:00 to 18:00 (two students and test flying) No set booking times
Saturday: 06:30 to 07:30 (two students)
07:30 to 08:30 (two students)
08:30 to 09:30 (two students)
09:30 to 10:30 (two students and test flying)
Weather dependent, this will give each student between 2 and 4 flights. On stages 5 & 6 students will be flying shorter time periods, but more flights.
Maintenance is the responsibility of the student and needs to be carried out regularly. As the bookings are set times, on field maintenance would result in your training slot being missed.
All care is taken to ensure the well-being of your equipment and in the event of damage, Aerial Concepts will become involved as much as possible to help keep you in the hobby.

All of the above items are to ensure the well-being of persons and equipment. Unfortunately only in extreme cases will exceptions be made so that we can all learn to fly as proficiently and quickly as possible.
